Can you believe it’s already March? I can’t believe how fast time flies! It’s almost officially the start of spring! And with the start of spring, it’s also the unofficial start of music festival season!
If you’re a follower of music festival style, then you know these extravaganzas are always so inspirational when it comes to fashion! There’s nothing I love more than the abundance of street style, but what always wows me the most are all of the ensembles that exude that perfectly effortless bohemian chic vibe!
Though the layers of lace, loose-fitting layers, and embroidered details may look complicated and difficult to style, there’s actually a super easy formula to achieving a bohemian chic look that works perfectly for festival season, transforming you in to a desert princess! Read on to see my four festival season essentials to achieve an effortlessly chic music festival ensemble!
1. White Lace Maxi Dress
There’s nothing more beautiful that embodies that bohemian chic vibe than a white lace maxi dress, don’t you agree? There’s just something about the light color palette, lace details, and flowing silhouette that makes you look and feel so whimsical and dreamy.
2. Loose Off-Shoulder Knit Sweater
Since you’ll be out in the sun all day, it can get quite warm during music festivals, but at the same time, the deserts can get quite chilly during the night. While it may definitely be smart to pack a jacket, it can be inconvenient to carry it around in your hands while you’re out enjoying the music and dancing away. That’s why I find a loose, off-shoulder knit sweater to be the perfect layering piece because it’s cozy enough to keep you warm, but at the same time, the looser silhouette and off-shoulder fit really helps you breath throughout the day!
3. Suede Ankle Booties
There’s nothing worse than trudging through grass and dirt with uncomfortable shoes, am I right? This is why, instead of opting for high heels, I like comfier options, such sandals, sneakers, or ankle boots!
While sandals are easy to get around in and sneakers are super comfortable, there’s nothing quite like suede ankle booties because they not only add a little extra height, they also fit that bohemian look so well, don’t you think? Plus, they look great with not only shorts and jeans, they’re also super cute with skirts and dresses, making them the most versatile shoe option (which means you’ll also be able to save space in your overnight bag)!
4. Small Cross-Body Bag
And of course, last but definitely not least, is a small cross-body bag! While a bigger bag can help you fit all of your belongings in to one place, it can become quite inconvenient, especially when you’re walking from one stage to another. That’s why I always opt for a small cross-body bag to hold all of my essentials. Not only is it so easy to carry around, due to its smaller size and lighter weight, cross-body straps also ensure that your bag will stay close to your side, so you won’t have to be afraid of people accidentally taking your bag!
